The Stassen Group of Companies headed by tycoon Harry Jayawardene has donated between US$ 100,000 to 250,000 to the William J. Clinton Foundation, it is revealed.
Former US President Clinton last week released a list of donors to his charity, The William J. Clinton Foundation following an assurance given he would do so on the nomination of his wife Senator Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State designate in President Elect Barack Obama's new Administration.
The 'Stassen Group' is named in the list of donors having contributed between US$ 100,001 to US$ 250,000.
Jayawardene is currently embroiled in a legal battle with fellow directors of the Stassen Group which is expected to turn nasty.
It is learned,Clintons detractors will trace the source of all monies received by the Foundation including whether they have come through the proper financial channels of the respective countries.
